The Doctor’s Kitchen Podcast: #58: How to Reverse Ageing (Part 2 of 4). Healthy Ageing with Dr Dan Levitin

For the second part of our reversing ageing series, my guest today is  Dr Daniel J. Levitin.  A neuroscientist, cognitive psychologist, and bestselling author. He is Founding Dean of Arts & Humanities at the Minerva Schools at KGI in San Francisco, and Professor Emeritus of psychology and neuroscience at McGill University. He is the bestselling author of This Is Your Brain on Music, The World in Six Songs, The Organized Mind, and A Field Guide to Lies and Statistics.

Daniel is a thought leader in the field of ageing and neuroscience, he has read thousands of research papers on the brain through the ages and his new book draws on cutting-edge research from neuroscience and psychology to demonstrate the cognitive benefits of getting older.

 

On the show today we talk about:

  • The beliefs that surround the ageing process

  • Our assumptions around memory loss and our focus on lifespan instead of ‘healthspan’

  • How our decision-making skills improve as we age

  • How Happiness improves in age

  • Practical and cognitive enhancing tricks for everyone to follow during each decade of their life

  • How to age joyously

  • We also dive into Dan’s food preferences, flair for music and some incredible stories from his life’s work
